We Handle Truck Accident Cases
You may be experiencing severe injuries and significant financial losses due to your accident. Regardless of the circumstances of your trucking accident, you may want to focus on your own health first and foremost, which is why some victims seek legal representation to handle the legal process of pursuing compensation. Truck accident cases can involve circumstances such as:
- Dangerous highway accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Workers’ Compensation
- Industrial vehicle accidents
- Manufacturer/product defect
- Jackknife truck accidents
We may submit your claim on your behalf so that you can focus on your recovery. Our law firm may also represent you in a court of law if you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Who Is Responsible for Your Injuries?
A truck accident attorney may conduct a full investigation to determine who is at fault for your incident. We may identify more than one at-fault party as well.
Sometimes, a road crew can be negligible in their responsibility to maintain a safe environment. Issues such as loose gravel, cracks, or potholes can lead to severe accidents with significant injuries. Your attorney may help decide if the road crew is responsible for the accident you endured, and if they are proven to be at fault, your attorney may pursue fair compensation for the burdens their negligence has caused you.
The Trucking Company
The commercial trucking company can be at fault in some occasions. There are many moving parts within such companies, and any of the following parties within the company can share blame for your accident:
- Owner of the vehicle
- Truck inspector
- Truck manufacturer
- The carrier
- Truck operator
- Auto part builder
- Shipping company
Your attorney may thoroughly analyze every detail of your case to help you narrow down where the guilty party is within the trucking company. After that, your case may proceed accordingly, and you may seek compensation from those who are at-fault for your injuries.
A truck accident can occur when another driver is driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sometimes something as simple as adjusting the radio station while driving can result in a devastating wreck due to distracted driving. A lawyer may help to determine whether your wreck was a direct result of another driver’s carelessness.
Whoever is responsible for your accident, needs to be held accountable. Let us help you ensure that justice is done. Call our law firm today at (412) 661-1400 to get a free consultation.

Seeking a Lawyer for Your Case
In the aftermath of a trucking accident, medical bills can pile up quickly. Accepting a low settlement from an insurance company may result in compensation that does not fairly address the losses you will suffer from your injuries in the future, especially if they do not show symptoms until much later. You may have an ongoing medical condition that will affect your life in ways you may not anticipate right now. It is completely within your rights to pursue a compensation amount from your settlement that accurately reflects the burdens you’ve experienced due to your trucking accident.
Another downfall of accepting an initial offer from an insurance company revolves around the fact that if you do, you may forfeit your rights to take legal action in the future if your injuries worsen. A Berger and Green attorney may fight to ensure your rights are protected.
How Much Is Your Truck Accident Case Worth?
The value of your truck case depends on circumstances such as how the accident occurred, which parties are responsible, and the total value of your losses. We may explore all of your damages to attempt to receive fair compensation possible based on your economic and noneconomic losses.
Damages you may be able to claim in a truck accident case include:
- Hospital and doctor bills
- Lost income (wages, tips, bonuses, benefits)
- Property damage
- Diminished earning capacity due to disability
- Loss of consortium
- Physical/emotional anguish
If the accident resulted in the death of the victim, then your family may be able to claim other damages such as burial or funeral expenses, loss of household income, pre-death medical expenses, and other damages. Our attorneys also handle wrongful death cases.
